    OK, we just got home from the walk. So, I used the ball. At home she was all happy when she saw the ball, then we went out with me showing her the ball all the time and surprisingly she started walking just fine. I think to myself: GREAT, the ball is working. We walk for a while, I'm happy that it's working, then she takes a huge dump, after which she walks for just a bit and STOPS. I try everything to make her move, nothing. I roll the ball down the road, NOTHING, she doesn't want to move! I drag her, she doesn't even move her legs, so she just slides a bit ... I try everything for 15 minutes, nothing, but the moment I turn in home direction, she starts happily walking like nothing happened!

    It turns out that even though she loves the ball, the only reason she went on the walk is because she had to take a huge dump. After that was done, the only way she wanted to walk was home. Atm I really AM the puppet and she the mistress! Haha.

    Now I need to prepare a different strategy for tomorrow, or later today if it's not too warm outside. I could probably use the neighbors kid, but again the same problem - the worst time of the year because of the heat. She already overheated a week ago, don't want to risk it again, learned my lesson.

    Your advice could come in handy in the future!

    OK, so we just had another try with our "walk". It was funny how hard she tried not to walk. Quite frustrating.

    Look at how she tried using the maximum amount of force! I guess she's a physics wiz!

    P.s.: But I at least tried making some light out of it, so you can check Lola's views about our walk on her Twitter account: http://twitter.com/EuroBully

    Sorry, thats funny and some what familiar too. When Usko does this I just put my hand in my pocket, cause he knows there sometimes is treats. So sometimes he get some treats and sometimes doesn't. If that doesn't help I check that it's safe and drop the leash and walk on, soon enough he comes running after me, looking a bit amazed how I could leave him!!!

    We jingle our car keys. Pan loves going on car rides, so when he hears them jingle he associates it with a trip.

    You could also drive to a half point, walk her back to the house, and take a solo walk back for your car. Might not be ideal for you, but it might solve the "I'm not walking problem" since she gladly walks home.
    If you can’t adopt – foster.
    If you can’t foster – sponsor.
    If you can’t sponsor – volunteer.
    If you can’t volunteer – donate.
    If you can’t donate – educate, network, and crosspost.
    EVERYONE can do something large or small, to help save a life.

    Get a wagon. Pull her in it to the destination.... Then make her walk home. And you still have the wagon in case she really likes it and begins to insist on being pulled about in both directions.
